Exhibition Description

Industrial Heartland is a photographic exploration that focuses our attention on a unique Melbourne industrial landscape in the City of Kingston. At first glance this intriguing area seems deceptively homogeneous in its purpose and appearance, but upon closer inspection this overlooked and utilitarian landscape is strikingly diverse and alluring.

Pizza Hunt is a photographic record of the 
iconic dine-in Pizza Hut restaurants that were erected in the thousands in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. Today, only a handful of these huts remain and they now have second lives as grocery stores, pawnshops, gospel churches, liquor stores and funeral homes - among other things. Those that remain, those that have not been demolished or are not slated for demolition, exist in the space where the unremarkable and the unforgettable meet.

Time is fleeting and moments may disappear as fast as they appear.

Time is lingering, slowly fading like a lovers kiss when saying goodbye.

Time is free yet priceless and once it's gone its gone. You never get it back.

We all know how intensive farming works, using industrial and scientific techniques to get the maximum amount of product at the lowest possible cost and using minimal space.  Yet we know much less about how intensive farming operates producing animal skins that are destined for the worldwide high fashion market. The business volume that revolves around this trade amounts to millions of dollars and euros. Among the famous brands using animal skins are Gucci, Hermes, Cartier and Burberry.

Exhibition Description

Quiet, epic, restrained, powerful. These are the images that tell their stories quietly and succinctly, but create maximum impact. They can be captured anywhere - from moments in a daily life to split-seconds in sport, from landscapes to red carpets to art-like conceptual work. On a surface level, the photos are direct and uncomplicated. But they engage our emotions and spirit with a clear message, like a visual haiku. You get hooked and the story unfolds.

Exhibition Description

The sheer immensity of a supercell thunderstorm or erratic exponential growth of a bushfire captures our attention like nothing else. History has been shaped by such elemental phenomena which were for so long attributed to gods. Photography has not only helped with the scientific study of weather but also captured the very essence of which makes us stare in awe at them.

This small selection of some of the most destructive and beautiful weather in Australia displays its unquestionable grandeur and allure, it perpetually captivates Fairfax photographers and others alike.

As a Fulbright grantee in San Francisco, I wanted to carry forward the idea of family portraits in such a diverse and liberal city and express the freedom and beauty that I experienced in California. Since working on my book Princesses and Football Stars, I have become very interested in the subject of family portraits.
